TODO list and work shoes await
TODO list and work shoes await...
My posting frequency has been down, because I have been chewing away at a pre-move TODO list. So far, I have hung a medicine cabinet, moved a towel bar, installed base shoe, painted trim, and distributed attic insulation. The flapper valve in the main floor commode gave out, so the list grows as I chip away at it. This reinforces the idea that I would be better off in a townhouse, when I relocate.

Much of the work involves getting rid of junk that had some value to me at one point. (And might in the future!) Even if I were not moving, this process makes me feel more free.

  • [75% complete]Caulk and paint all installed or repaired baseboard

  • Replace flooring in mud porch (cloak room)
  • Remove towel bar and set bathroom linen cupboard in its place.
  • Hang medicine cabinet
  • Distribute insulation bats in attic
  • Install base shoe in upstairs bedroom and hallway
  • Scrape all baseboard trim that was disturbed when hardwood floors were refinished.
  • Caulk and paint stair railings and baseboard (last step in stairwell restoration)
  • Furnish living room with entertainment center, end tables, leather couch, and leather reclining club chair
  • Paint main floor: living room, kitchen, and dining room
